According to the Government’s report, amending the Land Law is necessary to perfect legal regulations on land in line with socialist-oriented market economy institutions amid global integration, and strengthen land management in a way that harmonises interests of the State, land users and investors.

The move is expected to promote commercialisation of land use rights, develop a healthy real estate market, and establish a modern, transparent and effective land management system in tandem with administrative reform and digital transformation.

In the afternoon, Minister of Construction Nguyen Thanh Nghi was the first minister to answer questions raised by lawmakers.

Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh and the Ministers of Planning and Investment; Finance; Transport; Natural Resources and Environment; and Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs; Governor of the State Bank of Vietnam; and State Auditor General also joined the Q&A session to give further explanations about relevant issues.
